Is there somewhere we can get ALPS DCS keycaps for this board apart from here? Should I just buy without switches and keycaps and figure that out on the back end? Matias Click runs for like $50 for 200 switches and seeing as how capping the thing for a reasonable price by buying keys elsewhere might be a nightmare is it a better idea to just wait on a keycap drop for ALPS caps?

They are out of stock (for some sizes) now, but you could piece together a DSA or DCS set of blanks from PMK - I am sure you can get it together in the four months before this ships... if not, I am screwed as well. I would order without switches now and if you find caps before March, just buy the Matias elsewhere - they'll be about the same price.

Cool, I'll just do it that way then. Thanks!

Another advantage of doing that way is that you might change your mind about switches even if you do get the Alps caps - you can always put together an SKCM Blue set for example.
Also, jzhen is running an interest check over on GH (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=85186.msg2291619#msg2291619) for a Watermelon DSA set and a couple people have mentioned wanting Alps support - maybe if enough people show interest, we can get an Ergodox Alps set!
